Never a day goes by in Dallas without a great deal of interest and controversy surrounding everything to do with the Cowboys.
Fans of the Cowboys will be divided over whether or not the events that have unfolded during the offseason so far have actually benefitted their team or not.
Quite infamously, at the beginning of March, Dallas decided to allow league-leading running back DeMarco Murray to leave the franchise and sign with bitter rivals Philadelphia Eagles.
Ready to change
Whilst the NFC East team did manage to retain star receiver Dez Bryant, losing Murray was seen as a blow. On the flip side, the Cowboys managed to improve their defense by signing defensive end Greg Hardy last month.
But with Hardy's signature comes plenty of controversy. The former Carolina Panthers star knows fully well that Dallas took a gamble by signing him, and in an interview on Tuesday, Hardy explained that he owes Dallas owner Jerry Jones a great deal for offering him another chance.
“What I am going to do is make sure Jerry’s happy,” Hardy told WFAA, according to ProFootballTalk. “[Because] he took a chance on me.”
Confident of success
Hardy has had a history with violence, with his off the field problems the most prominent. The defensive end was charged with domestic violence before the case was eventually dropped, but he has still been suspended for ten games during the 2015 NFL season for his troubles.
Despite his brushes with the law, Hardy is certainly not low on confidence, predicting that he will be a huge success at the Cowboys.
“My success is already ensured,” Hardy continued. “I’m a Pro Bowl defensive end. Just got to keep doing what I’m doing.”
But Hardy knows fully well that it will be a long time before the football universe sees the defensive end in a positive light. In the meantime, he says that he will try and be a better person off the field.
“Be me again. Be a considerate, nice guy. Help people. Keep a lot of love in my heart," Hardy added. "Stay out of trouble. Keep my fans happy. Keep you guys [in the media] happy. And keep smiles on faces."
Will Greg Hardy be a success for the Dallas Cowboys? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
